John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr
The Beatles were the most amazing rock band ever(and yes that is a fact) from Liverpool, England and are the most critically acclaimed recording act in the history of popular music. The band's members were:

  • John Lennon (John Winston Ono Lennon), born October 9, 1940 and was murdered on December 8, 1980 - Vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards, harmonica and songwriter.
  • Paul McCartney (James Paul McCartney), born on June 18, 1942 - Vocals, bass guitar, guitar, keyboards, and songwriter.
  • George Harrison, born on February 25, 1943 and died of cancer on November 29, 2001 - Vocals, lead guitar, sitar and songwriter.
  • Ringo Starr (Richard Starkey), born on July 7, 1940 - Vocals and drums.


The Beatles disbanded in 1970. All four went on to further successful careers in music, movies, production, etc.

Early members of the Beatles included Stu Sutcliffe (June 23, 1940 - April 10, 1962; bass guitar) and Pete Best (born November 24, 1941; drums).

There are frequent references to a "Fifth Beatle", the most obvious and probably top of the list being their producer, Sir George Martin, another being longtime road manager, personal assistant, and CEO of Apple, the late Neil Aspinall.

Drummer Jimmy Nicol filled in for Ringo Starr for a few tour dates, but was never an official member of the group. Billy Preston played with them on Let It Be, but was not a permanent member.
